One of my favorites to go for a run or long walks are in only a few minutes from the Danbury Fair Mall. They are the Hemlock Hills, Pine Mountain & Bennett’s Pond Park in Ridgefield. These three parcels collectively form a 1200+ acre park of open space in the scenic Ridgebury section of Ridgefield. The terrain ranges from very level to steep climbs where you can enjoy great views . The Ives trail will be connect Tarrywile Park & the Wooster Mountain State Park in Danbury to this vast area of of space for a 14 mile walk.
